Telogen Effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss that typically occurs after a person has gone through a traumatic or stressful life event. Most often, it happens several months after the event has taken place. While Telogen Effluvium is mainly caused by stress, it can also be caused by poor diet, sudden weight loss, Menopause, and other underlying health conditions. It is considered to be the second most common cause of hair loss, second to Androgenetic Alopecia and it typically is reversible.
In women, Androgenetic Alopecia is a form of chronic Telogen Effluvium.
However, in men, Telogen Effluvium and Androgenetic Alopecia show different patterns of balding which differentiates themselves from one another.
In men, Telogen Effluvium results in a thinning of hair all over the head. The hair loss is diffused all over the scalp, rather than being in a set pattern. Men that have Androgenetic Alopecia often lose their hair at the top of their head and their front hairline recedes in a "M" shape.
Hair loss is the main symptom of Telogen Effluvium. Some people notice more hair loss when they wash their hair or when they brush their hair.
On average a person sheds 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. When you are experiencing Telogen Effluvium you will notice significantly more, closer to 300 strands per day.
No, Telogen Effluvium does not cause baldness. While it does cause hair loss and hair thinning overall or in patches, it does not cause baldness all over the scalp.
To diagnose Telogen Effluvium you must visit your doctor. They will review your medical history as well as your scalp and hair to diagnose the cause of your hair loss.
Without treatment, Telogen Effluvium will likely resolve itself within several months. The typical timeframe for Telogen Effluvium is approximately 3 to 6 months. Following that, a persons hair typically resumes their normal hair growth rate.
I've taken sugar bear hair vitamins for years, but I noticed recently that it wasn't showing the same results as it usually did. I was diagnosed with telogen effluvium and was told my hair would be falling out for 3 to 6 months and then would take 2 years to grow back to the length it was before my condition started. I started taking these vitamins and after two months, my hair has stopped falling out and I've seen so much growth and so many baby hairs, the relief is amazing. I'll be continuing to take these and hopefully it won't take the full two years to get my hair back to how it was.
Listen to the reviews! I'm 32 who has blonde, fine (typically) thick hair. After abruptly coming off of hormonal birth control because I noticed receding and thinning hair, I continued to lose more. To remedy, I've tried so many different hair vitamins since October, 2020 and either didn't notice anything happening, or had adverse effects to the ingredients. From so much continual disappointment, I even began to doubt St. Tropica until I looked at my before photos and realized these have helped tremendously. I took a deeper look at the front forehead line of my hair (where I first lost hair from birth control) and I have soooo many more new hairs growing. I have been parting sections of hair around my crown too to apply another serum product for strengthening follicles where I've lost 75% of my density because of telogen effluvium, and I FINALLY see hair sprouting through there too! I have to believe it's because of these vitamins. And I'm not even done with my 60 days yet. Please listen to the reviews. If it ends up not working for you, you can get your money back and put that towards another product. I'm going to continue these vitamins because they're working and it shows in my confidence now. I even bought a bottle for my 60 year old mom who has very fine, thin, brittle hair (who'd been starting to see more of her scalp and had been feeling less confident), and she is almost done with her 60-days and told me all her friends have started complimenting how beautiful her hair looks (and she hasn't gotten compliments on her hair since she was much younger). So it's working for her too!
Hello! I've had 10 months of Telogen Effluvium from medication/low ferretin. Had some huge bald spots on back of head and they are starting to fill in, believe St. Tropica has kickstarted some growth! I see baby hairs finally which I didn't before, can hopefully credit to this vitamin. No side effects- would just mix into a shake or take with water. Will be continuing to use until my hair grows out, thanks!
I want to start off by saying that this product works. I began to losing significant amount of hair due to pandemic and everyday stress as woman it was extremely disheartening to see the clumps of hair after showering or when combing my hair. My hair was thinning and this did not help with stress. I heard about St. Tropica products on social media and decided to give it a try. I had no side effects pill Is easy to swallow and let me tell you it works. Though I’m still not out of the woods with my TE it’s really exciting to see the regrowth and really has helped me with stressing less as I see a light at the end of the tunnel. This product works and I will continue to use this product and would recommend to others
Yes, there are treatments available, however first and foremost the cause must be addressed. Once the cause has been identified, then you can begin to implement diet and lifestyle changes.
Your doctor may also offer hormone replacement therapy or suggest non-surgical hair replacement. It is also important to address any nutritional deficiencies you may have with your doctor and improve them using supplements.
Supplements have also been shown to help those suffering from Telogen Effluvium hair loss as vitamins with Biotin, Iron, and Niacin have been shown to help support new hair growth.
